Baseman. The Guyanese Indians would have still remain cowards under the PNC regime. In NA we were enlighten it is only the last 2 decades that the Guyanese people over there are coming out of the shadows. Yet many are still struggling
I do take exception to the word "cowards". In spite of PNC marginalization back then, Indians found ways to put food on their families' tables even if it was salt and rice. Indians forwent things like partying and fancy clothes to take care of food first and then education afterwards. The PNC was a violent group and Indians didn't see engaging in that beneficial to them.
Correct, we lacked the proper leadership. Cheddie et al were not revolutionists in the traditional sense. They were talkers and not doers. I was in Guyana recently in my wheel chair and witnessed an indo standing up for his rights in a line at the telephone company where the Black fellow tried to bully his way in front of him. In the past that indo would have timidly caved in and let the Black go ahead.
